British Racing Motors (BRM) brought the magnificent V16 to the Prescott Historique on May 27th, receiving resounding applause from the crowd.
As part of BRM’s reawakening tour, the V16 Chassis IV was proudly displayed and demonstrated on the renowned Prescott Hill, much to the delight of the enthusiastic spectators. Two captivating demonstration runs were performed, one before and one after the lunch break.
Behind the wheel of this stunning creation was Rob Hall, of Hall and Hall who have been creating the three remaining continuation cars, and admitted it was his first time driving the hill at Prescott.
The crowd’s sheer delight was evident as he skillfully drove the V16 to the top of the hill, accompanied by rounds of applause. The distinct sound of the V16 echoed through the trees, offering the spectators the full glory of this remarkable machine.
BRM welcomed special guests and Paddock Pass members throughout the day. Former BRM works drivers, Mike Wilds and Howden Ganley, joined the celebrations, engaging in interviews and participating in the signing of a special BRM book. The book was later raffled off to raise funds for the historic venue.
Paul Owen of British Racing Motors commented: “What a glorious day it was at Prescott. We were delighted to be able to come here and showcase our V16 Chassis IV to the welcoming crowd.”
“We can’t thank Prescott enough for having us and the opportunity to entertain our guests, VIPs and Paddock Pass members, who thoroughly enjoyed themselves, at this lovely venue.”
